DUE DATE: Saturday, October 10, 2009
TOPIC: "That's Funny!"
Students should create a picture they feel will make people laugh. For this contest, you may only write up to one word on the picture so that the humor comes mainly from what's drawn and not what's written.
There will be a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th awarded in both divisions
LOWER DIVISION = age 4-8
UPPER DIVISION = age 8+ (turned 8 before October 1, 2009)
1st place = $30 in gift cards 2nd place = $20 in gift cards 3rd place = $10 in gift cards 4th place = a small prize
PARENTS: As usual, I am hoping that each family will donate $1 or $2 to help me with purchasing prizes.
1.) Only one entry per student
2.) The winners will be decided by student secret voting during class on the week of Oct. 12-17.
3.) Entries should be drawn or painted. Collage is allowed only if the entry has drawing or painting on it too.
Entries should not be sculpture, photography, video, or computer graphics. Also, please do not draw on graph paper or notebook paper.
4.) No tracing of photographs or other people's artwork!!! (Looking at photographs and other artwork to help you figure out how to draw something is okay.)
5.) Do not write the student's name or date on the front of the picture!!! (Writing on the back is okay as long as it can't be seen from the front.)
IF IT IS RAINING: We will have class at my house instead.
WHICH CLASSES WILL ATTEND: Mon. 3:45, Mon. 4:45, Tue. 5:00, Sat. 9:00, Sat 2:00, Sat 6:00
DATE: Sat. April 11th 5-7pm (unless the weather is bad) Those of you who have absolutely no way of making it on that day, I will try to arrange another outdoor class in May after I return from Paris.

LOCATION: Tanglewood Park. It is very close to my house. A map is posted below. Parents should drop off and pick up at the parking lot (where the tree symbol is on the map) not at my house. Please arrive early!
WHAT WE WILL BE DOING: This time, we will be creating ink drawings of nature using sticks that we find on the ground to draw with.
WHAT TO BRING: Bring a sketchbook. You may also bring a snack and a cushion, blanket, or small stool to sit on if you want to.

SPRING 2009 FAVORITE CARD ARTIST - Inga Wei!!!
- Favorite Card Artist is a new category. I had the students list the person that they most like to get the trading cards of. Trading cards show the artwork that students do in class AND outside of class. Winning this shows that Inga not only did a great job for the art contest, her peers have recognized her as someone who consistently creates great artwork during the year.
